Defining “Utility” “When Nike global director of digital media Stefan Olander looks at the Web, he doesn’t see an ad medium, though Nike runs its share of banner ads. Instead, he sees a chance to build Nike’s brand by providing valuable services. ‘We’ve been viewing digital as less of a marketing channel than a place for services,’ he said.” —Adweek

Defining “Utility” “...advertisers want to build brand loyalty by providing utilities that both improve people’s lives in some small way -- even if it’s simply a tool for customizing pizza -- and directly pad corporate bottom lines.” —Jeff Benjamin, CP+B quoted in Adweek

Defining “Utility” “When you create a utility...it becomes less about information as pollution and more about information to help people get through life.” —Nick Law, R/GA quoted in Adweek

Defining “Utility” “There’s a big possibility to deliver on your brand through the tools or functionality you can give people that are positive.” —David Armano, Critical Mass quoted in Adweek

Widget, gadgets, bubbles & badges = “Content redistribution” Simply put, all of these (micro) tools are examples of portability—code that enables anyone to move and share content that pleases them.

Content redistribution: “‘No digital property is an island anymore,’ said Schmidt. ‘Everything can be connected to everyone. You have to design for that. We think about how we can chunk up content, and make it viral and distributable.’” — Garrick Schmidt, Avenue A/Razorfish quoted in Adweek

iGoogle (http://www.google.com/ig) is a website you create almost entirely from widgets.

Another way to think about widgets, gadgets, et al are as applications.
